    “A home from home”

    Four of us (plus two dogs) spent a lovely weekend at Windy Sands. It was well-stocked and had everything we needed for our break. There was a bus stop outside offering a fairly regular service. Whilst the pub across the road was sadly lacking, the views of the estuary made up for it - they were spectacular. Other highlights of our stay were a visit to The Crown in Aberffraw, the coastal walk north from Aberffraw and the excellent fish & chips in Malltraeth ...

We all enjoyed our stay and would thoroughly recommend to others.

The property

Windy sands is a cosy nineteenth century cottage that sits in the southern end of the small, pleasant village of Malltraeth.

From the front there are uninterrupted views of the mountains of Snowdonia, whilst at the back of the cottage there are spectacular views across the estuary to the woodlands of Newborough and the mountain ranges of the Llyn Peninsula.

Malltraeth estuary is famous for its bird life, immortalised in the drawings of renowned wildlife artist, Charles Tunnicliffe who made Malltraeth his home.

Malltraeth's RSPB reserve is home to a range of breeding wetland birds and is a vital feeding area for migrating and wintering waders and wildfowl.

Snipe, lapwings, bitterns, redshank, curlews, tufted ducks and many more can be spotted here.

At high tide the sea is just a stones throw away and easily accessible through the back garden, which makes this location perfect for keen bird watchers.

This is a walkers paradise with walks in every direction, most of which are off road.

The Anglesey coastal walk passes the front door, the closest coastal path highlight is the beautiful Llanddwyn Island, voted one of the best beaches in Britain, which makes for a lovely walk through Newborough forest to the coastline.

This tranquil forest abounds with wildlife, including red squirrels, ravens and rooks - the view of the Llyn Peninsula from the coast here is spectacular.

With homely accommodation for up to four guests, this is an ideal base for couples or families wishing to discover all that this delightful island has to offer.

We welcome dog owners as this is a beautiful place to explore with plenty for the doggos to enjoy too.

Anglesey is an island with many attractions, beautiful beaches, historic sites and old churches.

With its awe-inspiring coastline and beaches, picturesque countryside, water sports, heritage and many, many activities there is a little something for everyone.

About the location

MALLTRAETH

Newborough 2 miles; Rhosneigr 8 miles.

The small village of Malltraeth lies in the south west corner of Anglesey, at the head of the long inlet formed by the Cefni Estuary and close to the popular Newborough Forest and Warren sand dunes. Malltraeth Pool and the magnificent sweep of marshes and sand dunes, which stretch south to Llanddwyn Island, are all part of a National Nature Reserve. The whole area is renowned for its birdlife and Malltraeth was once home to the famous wildlife artist Charles F Tunnicliffe. There are wonderful forest and coastal walks from the village, which has a pub, a cafe serving afternoon tea and a chip shop (also selling basic items/newspapers etc). Close by are beautiful beaches at Llanddwyn (reputedly the 4th best in Britain), Aberffraw, and Cable Bay, or head to Rhosneigr, which is renowned for its all year round watersports facilities.
